The Biblical Roots of Marian Consecration
Publication Date: October 25, 2022
Did you know that Marian Consecration is biblical? With roots stretching all the way back to Genesis?
Just as Jesus is the only Way to the Father (Jn 14:6), the sole mediator between God and man (1 Tm 2:5), so Mary is the primary mediator and intercessor before her Son. By virtue of the grace given to her as the Mother of God, she is the "Queen of Heaven and Earth."
In this timely book, Shane Kapler uncovers the biblical basis for Marian Consecration. He demonstrates how entrusting oneself to Our Lady--and living this devotion through practices such as praying the Rosary, wearing the Brown Scapular, and keeping the Five First Saturdays--is firmly rooted and foreshadowed in the Old and New Testaments. In Mary, we see the heights to which each of us is called: to be without blemish (Eph 5:27), be glorified in body and soul (1 Cor 15:51-53), and share Christ's heavenly reign (Rv 3:21).
Discover how, like Saint Joseph and Saint John the Apostle, we are invited to share in Mary's interior life, to fully surrender ourselves to the action of the Holy Spirit, and to begin loving Jesus with her Immaculate Heart.
More than ever, the popes have recognized Our Lady of Fatima's call--as urgent now as it was in 1917--for consecration and devotion to the Immaculate Heart as a reiteration of the Gospel, a plea for Christians to enflesh the message of Scripture.
